July 8, 2019 -Grand Central Station- NYC. Rush Hour. The commuters rush to catch their trains, must get home fast, NOT hang around for political rants. But, this was a SILENT “rant” in the middle of the Main Hall. Yet somehow the silence caught their eye and many chose to pause and watch.
[Face Book] Their message: “Join Rise and Resist in the main hall of Grand Central Terminal in a silent protest. We will address the Trump Administration’s newest attacks on asylum seekers and immigrants, as well as the deaths of refugee children in U.S. custody.”
“On June 17, Trump announced (tweeted) that ICE would begin a mass roundup of families that have received deportation orders. The plan is for pre-dawn raids in major U.S. cities. Imagine what this will feel like for the family, friends and neighbors.”
“Five days later, Trump delayed the raids for two weeks, until July 7. But the rhetoric of hate, and the fear of SWAT teams and home invasions, has a chilling effect. This is state terrorism.”
“On June 21, news broke about the unsafe and unsanitary conditions in the Customs and Border Patrol prison for children in Clint, Texas. Children were unwashed, unattended, hungry and sick. We know of 7 immigrant children who have already died in U.S. custody.
The Trump administration is terrorizing asylum seekers and forcibly removing children from their families. Trump is using terror as a tactic to deter immigration. This is immoral and inhumane.
We must object and demand that these policies end. Join us to demand: NO RAIDS – CLOSE THE CAMPS – ABOLISH ICE!” [Face Book]
The two sides faced off, Trumpers vs Rise and Resist Marxists. Read the Marxist flyer below [Click picture to enlarge]
This particular evening the Marxists tried something different. SILENCE while holding 4 banners and standing in a square. They were countered by Patriots who quietly engaged the passersby, often receiving support and thumbs up.
At one point the Marxists can be heard- breaking the silence- by leading self-congratulatory applause.”

Flash Forward from July 8: Democrats continue to squawk and wail about the ubiquitous tweets and rallies of President Trump. And, always, the anti-American ‘squad’ and their enablers continue to preach their insidious hatred of America, while demanding illegal criminals be allowed to cross OPEN borders into our country. America, they HATE her but LOVE living here.
Now, the latest complaints post how OFFENDED the Socialist cabal is by a crowd of Trump supporters chanting that Somali-born, Ilhan Omar, be sent back to fix her own country. Don’t deconstruct ours. Amongst so much misunderstanding, this happened (in a press vacuum) :
Journalist Travels to Ilhan Omar’s Homeland to Prove Somalia is Beautiful, Gets Killed by Terrorists – Paul Joseph Watson – Tragedy of cultural relativism strikes again
“While Nalayeh’s death would seem to underline the harshness of Trump’s remarks, it was also a visceral argument for what many understood to be his central point: that perhaps immigrants should be especially grateful to live in the United States,” (Pluralist)
